Several groups that represent that views of most North Carolinians who believe illegal aliens should not be allowed in our colleges are planning a protest in Raleigh on September 17 at 1PM outside of the Community College Executive Board meeting where appointees are expected to give illegal aliens access to NC Colleges.
"Since people will not be allowed to speak at this meeting, we are protesting outside," said William Gheen. "Important decisions like these should be left to state and federal elected officials, not appointed bureaucrats. This board voting to allow illegal aliens access to our community colleges is against the wishes of a vast majority of NC citizens and is depriving us all of a voice and representation!"
NC Community Colleges barred illegal aliens from attending in 2008, while Governor Beverly Perdue was a candidate and member of the Community College boards. NC state Attorney General Roy Cooper ruled that allowing illegal immigrants into our colleges violated Federal law.
"Illegal aliens should not have access to any non-emergency taxpayer benefits," said William Gheen. "North Carolina is already infamous for giving so many licenses to illegals under Mike Easley. Now we are going to be infamous for giving them training for jobs that are illegal for them to hold and at a time when North Carolinians are rushing into these colleges for retraining during the bad economy."
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is a national group with over 25,000 national supporters. Other groups participating in the protest against the expected decision of the board to grant college access to illegal immigrants includes NC Listen, NC Voice, NC Freedom, Randy's Right Blog, NC Tea Party Revolution, and Triangle Conservatives!
Members of the media are asked to let people know about this protest BEFORE it happens. The protest will happen outside of the building where the board will hold its meeting.
Concerned members of the public that also feel illegal immigrants should not be allowed in NC Community colleges are asked to join the protest. Appropriate signs and flags welcome but not required.
Media and protesters can join us this Thursday September 17 1-3PM at he corner of Jones and McDowell St. at 200 W Jones St, Raleigh, NC.
